Well it fits the style its a ale like bud, decent but nothing great in fact most of Brain beers with the exception of the IPA and white wheat ale, taste all about the same good but bland. I mean its beer, it gives you a buzz and its local fresh and cheap, if it was not Cheap I would not buy it to be honest. Seems its too 7 b like to me, the guy needs to break out and do something different.

A: clear yellow , no yeast, its filtered, little head when poured into a pint glass maybe 1/2 inch tops

S: some bread, very very faint hops

T: crisp, clean, bland, some what pilsner like, BMC like, not my favorite, some light bread, no hops

M: lite body, kind of watery

D: it goes down ok, but has a twang after taste, I did not think it was that great its decent but I did not want another.

Had this a few times around town before I decided to render judgment.

A: pale yellow in color, some head not much, I think its too cold.
Temperature check yep its 36F right out of the tap.

S: sweet bread, and some malt nose, with a faint detection of hops. not much here.

T: humm can you say bud? very light in flavor, some sweet malt, not yeast, spicy faint hops. very bland.

m: light body. medium carbonation

D: well tastes and drinks like bud to me, which I hate, some since I hate this beer, not much to say, other that so long.

Bold City Cream Ale
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into my DFH Signature glass
A: Pours a cloudy, straw colored yellow with no head.
S: Like a generic lager with some lemon and a little funkiness.
T: Bland, tastes like a cheap lager i.e. Budweiser; I thought this was supposed to be a cream ale, where’s the ale? Where’s the cream? Maybe some slight lemon flavor.
M: Same, Generic and slightly skunky despite only buying this two weeks ago.
O: Not impressed, better than PBR that’s about it. C

Reviewed from notes

A-Pours ultra gold. Oddly thiny fizzy head for a cream ale with not much lace or bubbles.

S-very very light aroma a little sweetness and some very faint indistinguishable hops.

T-A mild amount of sweetness and a splash of citrus and no creaminess. Weak flavors all around and a funky odd aftertaste that lingers.

M-Oddly the mouthfeel saves this beer for the most part. Its almost what it should be for the style maybe a little on the fizzy side.

D-Drinkability of this beer is as high as it is light. I did not really care for its flavors that much but if you did this would be a very drinkable beer for you. I did try the Dukes brown ale after this and enjoyed it much better but didnt have the time to review it. In the future however I will pass on this one.

Arrives clear and pale yellow with white head that drops fairly fast but leaves a smattering of lace.
Smell is malt, tortilla chips and not much else.
Taste is weak like the nose with malt and tortilla chips, some yeast and faint hops.
Light body though heavier than a lager. Lightish effervescence. Not bad but nothing to recommend it either.

Killer Whale Cream Ale by Bold City Brewery Jacksonville Fl. 5.5% alcohol.

A- Pours a calm yellowish orange fluid that produces a small white head leaving light if any lacing.

S- Slight citrusy scent and mild malts are in the nose.

T-M- Taste is a small bite of citrusy hops and mild malty backbone. Mouthfeel is smooth but lacking on the creamy side but all and all drinkable.

O- Drinkable as hell if at the right price.
